David Kopf, editor of HME Business, attests to the strong competition in this year’s award selection. “We had an extremely compelling array of products across a wide variety of categories. The competition was particularly hot in the software and in the sleep categories where the margin of victory was narrow and reflected the continued innovation in those categories,” says Kopf.

CareTend’s business intelligence tools give HME providers a 360-degree view of their data so they can evaluate processes, track key metrics, satisfy stakeholder reporting needs, and eliminate hours of manual reporting with the power of automation.
